Earlier this year, KVOE News told you the Department of Transportation shop site near U.S. Highway 50, 12th Avenue and Graphic Arts was going up for auction. KDOT has now scheduled a tour of the building for interested buyers at 9 am Tuesday.
Kurt Daniels of the KDOT Bureau of Right of Way says auction personnel and people familiar with the property will be on hand to both show the site and answer questions. The auction will be Aug. 12, and there will be a similar meeting that morning before the auction begins.
KDOT is planning to move its personnel to the Kansas Turnpike property nearby in a consolidation move. KDOT first acquired part of the property in 1951, completing the purchase in 1964.
